Cuvelier Los Andes : Coleccion 2011

Mendoza - Red Cuvelier Los Andes Cuvelier Los Andes 2011 J1397/11
  • Parker : 91
Wine Advocate-Parker :
The 2011 Coleccion Blend is a multi-grape blend consisting of 58% Malbec, 18% Cabernet Sauvignon, 12% Petit Verdot, 8% Syrah and 4% Merlot fermented in inox and partially aged in French oak barrels (60%) and is the top wine produced in 2011, a disastrous vintage for the winery, when 75% of their crop was destroyed by hail and they didn't produce Grand Vin or Grand Malbec, so I suppose the best fruit went into this cuvee. For a cool vintage with plenty of challenges, the wine reached 15% alcohol, so don't expect any green aromas or diluted flavors here. The nose is a powerful combination of dark plums, espresso coffee, Belgian chocolate and shy hints of red cherries with a full-bodied palate and abundant, fine-grained tannins, moderate acidity and good length, no doubt lifted by the alcohol. This is a big, ripe blend, slightly international, in need of some bottle aging. 42,000 bottles were produced in 2011. Drink 2015-2021.;2015 - 2021
